GET LAMP: Richard Bartle (December 5, 2006)

something has gone horribly wrong 8-p

During the production of GET LAMP, I began to see if there was a potential link between text adventures/interactive fiction and MUDs. To do this, I reached out to a couple legends in the MUD historical timeline, including the creator of TinyMUD, the creator of Legends of Future Past, and Richard Bartle, who created MUD. (Also known as MUD1). When I was in London on a speaking engagement in 2006, he kindly agreed to travel to my hotel and get interviewed there. While I ended up not drawing a huge link with Interactive Fiction and MUDs, the power of text-based communication and the lessons the MUD/TinyMUD creators learned did make their way into the movie. Mr. Bartle provided a wonderful set of statements and one rant that made it into the film handily.

This movie is part of the collection: The GET LAMP Interview Archives
